These are the slides for my MySQL 8.0 Preview: What is coming? At PHPWorld 2017.
Yes, you read it correctly, we are jumping from 5.7 to 8.0 (that sounds familiar, doesn’t it?). The new version doesn’t only change the number but also changes how you write SQL. Recursive queries will allow you to generate series and work with hierarchical data. New JSON functions and performance improvements were also added to 8.0 to help you work on non-relational data. Expect to see what is new and improved in this talk to power up your application even more.
